    Comments about Oneida DIY Molded Dust Deputy Cyclone :

    Mounted the unit on a piece of scrap AC plywood, cut to fit inside a 31 gallon galvanized trash can. Used an old serpentine belt from the Jeep glued to the plywood as a sealing gasket, grooved edge out, towards the can. Made a gasket from gasket stock for differentials to go between the plywood and the Deputy. Sealed on the plywood side with RTV sealant. Works perfectly! The galvanized trash can will "oil can" a little bit when it gets bogged down, but it pops right back when you turn the vacuum off. No more shoveling shavings after a planing session!

    Comments about Oneida DIY Molded Dust Deputy Cyclone :

    Many people have mounted the DD to a table top. The way I found to do it was to get a second bucket and screw that to the wood box I built to encase my shop vac and lessen the noise. After you have a mobile and strong surface, insert the DD into the second bucket and you no longer have to worry about it tipping over, provided that your table is stable.

    Comments about Oneida DIY Molded Dust Deputy Cyclone :

    This is not for the heavy duty user - it is too small. But it is excellent for folk's like me with a small shop with only one machine hooked up at a time with only a simple shop vacuum of some sort (I use a little 5 gal ShopVac). The combination of a Dust Deputy and the ShopVac does a really nice job for me (using 2-1/2" hose). Everything goes through the Dust Deputy and very little ever gets to the ShopVac. It takes the big stuff, the small stuff and just fills up the plastic paint bucket. I built mine into a 'tower' with wheels and the ShopVac on the top. Move it around and connect the hose. It is a bit difficult pulling the pail out to empty it and I am still working on a fool proof way to keep the hoses on the input side (slippery plastic) but other than that, I am a happy camper.

    This Dust Deputy is wonderful. I works great to keep my shop cleaner. It eliminates the need to frequently clean the filter in the shop vac. I can work all day and only need to dump the contents once a day. Love Love Love...it.....!!!

    Comments about Oneida DIY Molded Dust Deputy Cyclone :

    Great value at bargain price - I was dubious, but bought a 5 gal pail and top at my big box store, hooked it up in 2 minutes and was completely surprised with the improvement in my shop vac suction without a clogged filter anymore. Just make a 3 to 3.5 inch hole in the pail top and bolt top and dust deputy together. Hooked it in to my planer and it was very impressive seeing its vortex action. I am planning a combo cart to house it with the vac because it readily tips over . My workaround was putting a drill press vice (about 5 lbs and heaviest small item I could do without for awhile) into the pail, so that it now strands up to the hose movement without tipping.

    Comments about Oneida DIY Molded Dust Deputy Cyclone :

    Used the Dust Deputy with a Ridgid WD1450 through the fine bag, HEPA5 filter and muffler. Removed over 700 sf of tile and thinset. NO DUST! The DD captured all the chips and dust with barely any dust in the vacuum. Had a pro use it when he ground the surface smooth- he was so impressed he charged me half if I would give him the DD setup. Everyone who saw it in action now wants one, including the new-floor installers.
